There were wide smiles on the faces of children at the free kite-making activity at Undera Recreation Reserve on Wednesday.

The youngsters coloured in their kites, shaped as either a butterfly or hawk, and then headed out on to the oval to fly their creations.

Greater Shepparton City Council provided the activity through its Activities in the Park summer program.

Activities in the Park assistant Mim Cuthbert, who has been in the role for two years, said it was a lot of fun going to so many different activities.

‘‘We try our best to find out what people want and do surveys of all the activities we run,’’ she said.

The next kite-making workshop is on Monday at Dookie Recreation Reserve off Dookie St from 10am to noon.

Activities in the Park runs until April this year with hundreds of free and low-cost events for people of all ages.
